Off To Space

Gene Roddenberry, who created Star Trek, and his wife Majel will be taking a special trip together.

Roddenberry passed away in 1991, and his wife died last month.

It was Majel's wish that some of their remains be shot into space together.

Well, a company called Celetis will help fulfill her wishes! That's the same company that sent some of Gene's ashes into space back in 1997.

Celestis has just announced that the couple's ashes will be sent into space on a mission they are calling, what else, Voyager.

    Seems like a natural ending for these two.
    I've heard of married Oceanographers having their ashes scattered at sea and parachutists having their ashes scattered from a plane, so for the Roddenberry's what else could there have been?

    Sooooooooo what's it going to be for you two???
    You'll have to send some of your ashes to Perez to sit in an urn on his shelf because this is where you met. LOL
    Is that too gruesome?

    said you missed this one 'rez, but its all good mate..
    for those who dont know, majel played nurse chappel (sp) in the original trek series back in the 60's. she was the computer voice of the starships in all the movies and tv shows (next gen, voyager, ds-9 and enterprise) as well as the animated series back in the 70's/80's…a true loss for the sc-fi community.

    and yes, i am a complete trek geek…

    He may have been married to her but he had not wanted to be with her for some time. Roddenberry was notoriously sleeping around with other women during their entire marriage. One woman wrote a book about it. Majel simply wanted everyone to think she was a devoted wife - when she was simply a Mighty Shrew clinging to the kingdom like a famewhore. After his death, she ran the empire like Hitler and drove the ST people completely nuts. She may want their ashes to be together in space but space is COLD and VAST - just like her.

    I thought I heard that that rocket that sent Gene's ashes malfunctioned? His ashes are in the Pacific Ocean.
